I want to go on the record that I'm offering to pick up his bike at Mattighofen and ride it to the airport. With a few break-in detours, maybe...

I see Ned's through WP1, and I'm afraid to go to the F5irehose thread.
Off to work for me, the New Year (of work) begins. Thanks for the updates F5'rs!

GO NED!!

Looks like Ned lost some time at CP2 21:56 ?

Edit: But he's up from 62 to 56th place, so maybe not...

I'm sure he'll lose more and more time from the leaders; those guys are from another planet. The longer the stage, the more distance they'll put between themselves and everyone else...

Are they the aliens who built the pyramids?
HEY! Maybe the pyramids are actually waypoints!!

Thanks Hayduke for pointing out the fact that a longer stage would increase tle amount he falls behind.
I didn't think about THAT....

At least he's still moving up in position


GO NED GO!!!

Ned's going to ride his own ride, and not get caught in the trap of trying to catch the faster guys; he's a smart rider.

"don't let the snowball get too big"

I'm amazed at how relaxed he sounded on the call last night, and very much in control. Certainly a good sign.

Apparently Coma got lost after WP 3 and will lose some time (perhaps following the car route?). Hopefully Ned is paying attention since he's getting close to same area.

Hope is head is still more on finishing than being second American.

Something pretty interesting...

yesterday, Ned's overall pace was 77% of the leader.

today, through 2 check points he's right at 78%. That's some fine consistency.
